I’ve got a very important announcement. 🙂
These awesome, fantastic, darling, sassy, AND COMFORTABLE leopard wedges are STILL ON SALE. That means you’ve got another chance.
And if you’ve talked yourself out of getting them until now, it’s time to stop arguing with yourself.
Just get them already.
Get them now, thank me later. It’s really that simple.
I posted the below picture on instagram on Sunday with the following message:
Okay, girls. Time to get serious. I wore them to church this morning, and THEN I WORE THEM TO THE GROCERY STORE. Did you hear that? They were comfy enough that I didn’t have to change before going TO THE GROCERY STORE. Now THAT’S a comfy wedge! smile emoticon
Anthropologie is doing a rare FREE SHIPPING WITH NO MINIMUM code!
I’ve featured this next pic before, but I thought I would throw it out there again now that there is
a free shipping code!
I actually reallllllly love this outfit because it’s SO simple, but I think it looks really great!

*And remember, PTMT15 gets you 15% OFF the necklace!
Let’s talk for a second about the jeans.
I had a gift card to Anthro that was burning a hole in my pocket. A sales girl insisted that I try on these jeans, even though they are WAYYYYYY more than I’ve ever spent on jeans.
I tried them on, and I’ve gotta say, they’re like buttah.
They are VERY soft and fit like a glove. They don’t sag and they stay put throughout the day.
If you are looking for a structured jean, these jeans aren’t for you.
Also, I’m almost 5’4″ and they hit me a bit above the ankle. So if you are tall, these jeans aren’t for you either.
But if you are shorter (like me), and want an ankle length jean THAT FEELS LIKE BUTTAH….well then, you’re in luck. 🙂
For size reference, I’m wearing an X-SMALL in the tank and a 27 in the jeans.
The price adjustment will be made at check-out.

A new sale item popped up at Nordstrom today that I’ve featured previously.
The wedge is only 2 3/4″, so this could be the wedge for all of you tall girls out there that have been asking for short wedge recommendations!
They are 33% off, making them $39.90!
I tried them on and found them to be true to size. And I didn’t have them on for long at all, but they seemed to be quite comfortable! For $39.90 they might be worth the risk to some of you!
OKAY! IT’S BACHELOR TIME LADIES!
And for the record, I don’t have an issue with suspenders in general.
I do however take issue with suspenders left dangling with a sports coat worn over them.
I feel like you have to draw a line somewhere.
Kupah keeps cussing up a storm and waving his arms, and them claims that he “doesn’t even like her right now.”
And let’s not play like she even knew Daniel’s and Corey’s names until a producer told her.
We come back from commercial, and HOLY 600 pound SUMO WRESTLERS!
I will say that the guy that blurred Jillian’s hiney last season is probably happy to have his job back.
And it seems that he’s abandoned the black box for the much more sophisticated pixilated box.
He get tossed around like a rag doll, and his pride is seriously injured.
So he leaves the area and starts tantruming. Kaitlyn goes after him and he explains that “having to show aggression on every competition isn’t right.” And that he would “rather go into something peaceful and quiet.” He then goes on to say, AND I QUOTE, “I have the heart of a warrior and the spirit of a gypsy.” Tony, that is hysterical.
Well Tony, you can check that off your list.
Um, Tony. That’s not very peaceful, lovely, or harmonious.
Tony, to borrow your words, CALM THE EFF DOWN.
Kaitlyn talks to Tony and suggests that he take a moment to calm down and find his zen.
Meanwhile, the rest of the men head to the sumo exhibition!
This group date is pretty much genius.
I’d like to go ahead and high five the producer that thought of this one.
The guys are hysterical. Tony is strutting around like a peacock, but these guys are taking the wrestling seriously. They are SUMOing each other like nobody’s business.
And apparently Clint wrestled in college and is SERIOUS about his wrestling, so there’s that.
Back at the house, Tony is still pontificating about rainbows and butterflies.
He packs up his stuff and pulls himself out of the competition.
The sumo group has now headed to the evening portion of their date.
Kaitlyn has 1:1 time with most of them (except Clint, who is apparently playing hard to get) and she and Ryan Gosling really seem to be hitting it off.
Mr. Gosling gets the rose.
And in a 1:1 interview, Clint says the following:
We’ll get back to this later.
They are told to “Be Prepared for Anything.”
BEN Z. gets the date!
So Ben and Kaitlyn arrive at a warehouse, and Harrison is there to greet them.
He tells them that they are going to go in a room, the door will lock behind them, and that they are going to have to work together to get a secret pass code that will eventually let them out of the room.
They have 45 minutes to do so before poisonous gas will start to fill the room.
When all of this is being explained to them, you hear Kaitlyn quietly say, “Did I just hear a bird?”
I thought that was a weird question….but here’s the deal…. America is about to see that
HOMEGIRL HATES BIRDS.
So what does ABC decide to do?
Exploit that fear of course!
Again, ladies of the world, PLEASE LISTEN TO ME.
If you are applying to be on The Bachelor or The Bachelorette,
when your application says “List your Top 3 Fears.”
I would suggest the following:
3) the Louis Vuitton monogram
There is all sorts of crazy going down in this creepy room, but Ben Z has it all covered.
A scorpion, dead cockroaches, maggots, some weird person under a sheet on the bed that keeps wiggling around.
IT’S STRAIGHT UP WHACK.
Ben keeps his cool the entire time and does a good job of keeping Kaitlyn from stroking out.
UNTIL he has to walk into a bathroom of humongous snakes and reach into a toilet full of foul looking nastiness to get the last clue.
GIVE THIS MAN A ROSE.
Ben and Kaitlyn head back to her pad for wine and pizza.
He opens up a bit more about the day his mom died, and he admits that he hasn’t cried in 11 years.
He seems pretty self aware, and Kaitlyn is digging his chili.
And I’d like to go ahead and put it out there that we will see him cry like a little bitty baby before the end of the season.
BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT THEY CALL FORESHADOWING FRIENDS.
They end the night in a hot tub drinking champagne.
Ben Z. gets the rose.
GROUP DATE CARD
Jonathon, Ben H. , Joshua, Ryan, Jared, Tanner
It says “Let’s learn to love.”
The guys hop on a school bus and head to a local elementary school.
Kaitlyn tells them they are going to be substitute teachers, so they have 15 minutes to study their lesson plans. And y’all. The syllabus for the day is SEX EDUCATION.
And I immediately start to wander WHO ARE THE PARENTS THAT LET THEIR CHILDREN BE ON THIS FREAK SHOW?
I mean, forget the parents, no school district or administrator would ever allow this to happen.
I mean, can you imagine the permission slip?
So, let me take all of the awkwardness out of it for you.
THESE KIDS ARE ACTORS.
Actually, let’s be honest, that only takes a tiny part of the awkwardness out of it.
These kids should be riding bikes.
Not participating in a fake sex ed. class on national t.v.
However, knowing they are actors will help you focus on how mortified the guys are.
Which admittedly makes for some good t.v.
Ryan is up first, and his lesson is to teach about the female anatomy.
Lots of words are bleeped out, and one kid kinda gags during the talk. Which is hysterical.
The topics include:
And then Peter Brady gets up and talks about reproduction.
And I gotta say, he hits it out of the park.
Carol and Mike must be so proud.
He talks about the importance of a relationship and love, and he’s actually pretty dang cute.
I’m thinking Kaitlyn might give Peter an opportunity for some extra credit later.
The sex ed. subs head to the rooftop pool for the nighttime portion of their date.
Joshua admits that he never kissed a girl until college, and Kaitlyn thinks he needs to step up his game! For the record, I like Joshua. Peter Brady (Ben) is up next. He worked at a youth center for a long time, and now he goes back and forth to Honduras where one of his best friends started a non-profit. PETER. WE LIKE YOU.
And I’ve gotta say, this guy is SMOOTH!
Jared (patchy soul patch guy) and Kaitlyn get some time together.
She says that she’s loves his black eye and that she thinks it’s hot.
In fact, when the bruising starts to go away, she says she wants to punch him again.
Kaitlyn gives the rose to Peter Brady.
I wonder if he’s going to run home and tell Bobby.
Back at the house, love is beginning to blossom between Clint and JJ.
It shows them horsing around in the pool, cooking together, eating together, and I’m not totally sure, but it appears they are having a shirtless thumb war.
And I’m all..
Then they head to the hot tub together and talk about their shared love for turtles.
And then I’m all….
And then IT GETS REAL.
Clint basically admits that he’s fallen in love with JJ.
Now listen here.
I’m fully aware that this is THE BACHELOR we are watching and this is probably creative editing at it’s finest, but I’ve gotta say, right now a part of me is falling for it.
Kudos to the editing team.
TIME FOR THE ROSE CEREMONY COCKTAIL PARTY.
Right off the bat, Clint takes Kaitlyn off for some alone time.
And we think that he’s going to tell her that he wants to leave.
You know, because he wants to marry JJ.
But he doesn’t.
He kisses her instead.
And I’m confused.
But then he rambles something about having his power socks on and how he needs to get a rose and stay around so he can get to know JJ.
I really do know that this is ABC probably just punking us, but their relationship is making me raise an eyebrow. At the very least, I’m cocking my head to the side in confusion.
One by one, the guys go up and tell Kaitlyn that Clint and JJ are up to no good.
So the show ends with Kaitlyn taking Clint off to talk to him.
And here we are again.
Left to wait for another rose ceremony.
Teaser for next week:
Some guy (I think JJ) slaps himself in the face.
I can hardly wait.

I put this on facebook and ig over the weekend….but our favorite $8 earrings now come in black! These will be especially awesome for you blondies out there!
Click HERE for the earrings that many of you seem to love almost as much as I do. 🙂

But then this happened on Tuesday morning, and I’m not sure if I’ve ever been closer to stroking out
BECAUSE NOW THE EARRINGS COME IN HOT PINK AND GREEN.
Thank you Jill for facebooking me at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning to let me know!
I mean, I was excited about the black for the blondies out there (the black would just disappear in my hair)…. BUT HOT PINK AND GREEN! NOW WE’RE TALKING LADIES!
(And I know it’s hard to tell the difference in this picture…but the pair I have on in the picture are a much softer “mint”, and the new ones are a more true green.
To quote Shelby, “One shade is much deepuh than the other.”)
And for those of you that asked about my necklace, you can find it HERE!
It’s not just my name, it’s my actual signature!
I got the acrylic “antique gold”.
And I received several inquiries after Monday’s post asking about the Accessory Concierge jewelry.
First of all, I got questions from some that had never ordered from them before about the quality of the pieces.
The quality is TOP NOTCH.
The girls that own A.C. and work there take great pride in their store, and in addition to awesome pieces, you will also receive EXCELLENT customer service.
I also received several questions about which piece I would choose if I had to pick just 1.
If I HAD to choose just one piece right now,
I would have to go back to the wooden beaded tassel necklace that I named a spring and summer staple back on THIS post.
I still wear it at least 1 x a week, and I got it back at the end of March. The newness hasn’t worn off, and I find myself grabbing for it time and time again.
Click HERE for the wooden bead tassel c/o Accessory Concierge.
And guess what?!? The A.C. ladies have extended the code!
